Being a mompreneur is the absolute hardest job out there.
Let me tell you why:
The grandparents took our eight year old son for most of the weekend.
They saw a movie, went to a museum, learned about flying dinosaurs, and even did and a little digging for gemstones.
Our home was quiet for most of the weekend. It was blissful.
My husband sat working and reading and enjoying a quiet cup of coffee. I buzzed around worked on the house and spring cleaning all of Saturday. On Sunday I worked on my computer and business.
I was amazed at how much work I got done with no child at home.
That said, by Sunday afternoon it was too quiet and I was ready for the noise of my kiddo again!
If you are a mom you know what I mean.
Being an entrepreneur and a mom is an amazing balance act which I’ve likened to sitting on a see-saw before.
While trying to work on & successfully grow both.
Once in awhile you get to feel the difference of what it would be like if you could work on your business full time. Of course I’m not saying we wish we didn’t have our children. There is just a simple freedom of knowing how much more we could get accomplished.
Time & Money
I remember my twenties and now I wish I had started and grown my business then when I was free.
But you see I didn’t appreciate time the same way I do now. Before you learn there are going to be things that will take up most of your time in life you are free and time has no limits!
The same goes for money. You appreciate money more when you have a certain amount going to many things vs. a certain amount only going to one thing with a lot left over.
Until you learn the value of money you simply can’t appreciate it.
As a mom you absolutely know the value of the time you spend with your child because it is precious. You also know the value of the money you spend on your family because it is finite.
The same holds true as a mompreneur. Time is precious and money is finite.
What about the roller coaster of emotions a mom goes through with her child. I mean I get emotional just watching my child sleep. Thinking about him growing up, getting older, playing sports, it’s all almost too much for my heart.
The same holds true for an entrepreneur. Birthing new products and ideas, watching them succeed or fail, getting rejected, being accepted, making money, not making money, this is also almost too much for my heart.
That’s why I believe being a mompreneur is the hardest job in the world. You have two passions, full of emotion, balancing time for each (not to mention hubby), while using a finite resource!
What if you throw in other passions like:
Church, bible study, hiking, photography, boating, and skiing?
And kid activities like football, swimming, music lessons, and birthday parties.
Not to mention date nights, extended family, family vacations, housework, and yardwork.
Holy crap now a mompreneur really is SUPERGIRL!
That’s our life and we live and breathe for it! We are living our dream.
I’m not just a stay at home mom. I’m freaking Superwoman!
Am I slightly envious of women for whatever reason have more time to work on their business? Sometimes.
But mostly I know it’s up to me to create and manage my schedule to allow me to live my best most aligned life with all that God has blessed me with!
This is my affirmation, “I am going to make money in such a way that it doesn’t cost me my chill time and time with my family!”
You can insert whatever you want but it should become a daily affirmation for you too.
I would love to hear your thoughts about being a mompreneur!
